My bet he is still mobil, if the last blood you found was still wet that's probably where he bedded last night. Gut shot with a rage will kill him but it could take a while. Wish I had a better theory but that's all I got.

Very risky with this much publicity. Some of you guys need to study up on what can be lost / cost by getting caught tracking with a dog.

Good luck, but I'm thinking like you, if the blood was wet you're trailing a live/dying deer. At least you're 200 yrds closer and know the right direction. I one lunged a deer several years ago and was standing right by him at midnight, could smell him but not see him, and found him the next morning laying flat still breathing. He jumped up and ran another 40 yrds, fell, and I was able to finish him. The bright side is if he is alive and weakening your meat is still good.

If you think he's still alive and ya'll are pushing him! Have your buddies drive an area while you are in a elevated position maybe then you will be able to pin point his location while he is moving threw the brush. Might even be able to put a stock on he or atleast locate where he goes down to bed. IDK just an idea, chances are if he's that injured and going to die he might be just moving enough to stay off your grid.

Not sure if this has been said already, but if there is a fence on the property walk around the whole fence line to see if you see anyblood, hair, etc.

Found blood again 50 yards away from the last it is still very wet and fresh we decided to back out, we didn't want to keep pushing the deer if it's still alive I don't think it will die or it will take a couple days for it to die which isn't good. The blood we recently found was a quite a bit to where he might of been bedded and we jumped him up. NOT good but we decided to give him more time and just see what happens.
I've been out here for 10 1/2 hours I still find it amazing that we have found this much. I am exhausted but what can I say I tried my hardest. I am kind of glad you can't run dogs just in case he is alive.
I'd like to thank all y'all for hanging in here with me I wish I could have him in my hands and be posting LPD's but mistakes happen. I will keep updating this on what's going on. I don't even have a TC in the area I shot him but I will and hopefully I get a pic of him alive or find him dead.

Don't give up. That deer is hurt bad or he would nbor still be that close to where you shot him. Sometimes a gut shot can take a long time to finally be fatal, but it WILL be fatal. You know where he is, so just give him another full day to die and then go get him. He'll be there. Hang in there. I feel confident you will find him.

I have mixed feelings. One part of me says gut shot and he will likely die in the coming days. The last picture of the blood looks to be from muscle. If this is the case, the deer will make it(if infection doesn't set in). I would wait as long as you can stand it tomorrow and take up the trail at last blood late tomorrow afternoon. If hit hard, he should not have lived this long. Good luck and hope it works out in the end.

I have seen numerous animals get shot much worse with a rage and not live more than a few hours....I wish you the best in finding him but if anything I hope it teaches patience in letting the animal lay if it is a questionable shot....waiting on pics!!

My bad I guess I answered my own question. Was so wrapped up in the "hunt for the deer" that I never made it past the 1st page. Good luck man you will find him soon and just think of the story you will get to tell everyone when they see it on your wall and ask, "where did you shoot that one at?"

The way he described the shot it sounds like it could have been both....I am surprised he didn't gather up some heart products or connections with that rage along the way at that angle....
